Zero to Hero Day 7: Do Some More Personalising


Today’s assignment: create and upload a simple header, or test out a few different backgrounds.

I’ve been wondering for a long time whether or not my header fits my blog. I wasn’t sure if a header with strong Fairy Tail characters could convey the meaning of Otaku Daydreams. Thus, today’s assignment came in handy.


After playing around with the screenshots I’ve taken for my anime reviews, I chose this picture from episode 1 of Noragami, a new anime that I’m watching and reviewing this season. I feel that this picture matches the meaning of my blog title. What I really like about it is the lighting and the colours which give a dream-like feeling. For me, that’s the main focus of my header. (Yato and Hiyori just happen to be there, in a way. It’s not like I usually write reviews for romance anime.) For my header, I’ve included my blog title as a change. I really like the font, Cargo Crate and I find it very cool.

In my opinion, this header is a better representation of Otaku Daydreams. I haven’t tested out any backgrounds as suggested by today’s assignment. I feel that the light grey background fits well with the rest of my blog. It might seem plain, but it makes the actual content of my blog the main focus. Adding a background would be a bit too distracting to me.

Okay, I’m done with Day 7 now. Looks like it’s been a week since I’ve started participating in Zero to Hero! Anyway, let me know what you guys think about my new header.

  1. Looks good. The two being in the distance carries over to the writer. It feels less personal than, say, a close up shot, more voyeuristic. If others respond the same way, I’m not sure, but it might be something to consider. Otherwise, the blue tones in the pic harmonise with the blues in your font which is very nice.

  2. I like the new header. It does have an “daydream” feel to it. Since it is an anime screenshot it represents a part of the “otaku.”

    When I saw the Fairy Tail header it had a thought that either you liked Fairy Tail or focused on Fairy Tail. But at the same time it had the header that made me not think about it and that you liked Fairy Tail probably.
    But the tagline helps out to make me think it’s not just Fairy Tail.

    I like the new header though. I like the background the way it is too.

    • Thanks for commenting! I’m glad you think so. When I just created my blog, I chose the Fairy Tail header because I couldn’t think of what I should put as my header. It is only after watching Noragami that I finally found a better picture to replace it.

  3. My daughter loves your header! 🙂

  4. What do you use to personalize your header?
